An artist and activist from ACT UP who lived through the early years of HIV/AIDS, Sam (Alan Cumming of “The Good Wife”) is a man scarred by and still struggling with survivor’s guilt. Cemented into an oppressive past, he is bewildered by a younger generation of carefree gay men, with their uninhibited use of social media, their sexting, and their seeming political indifference. But when he meets the seductive young Braeden (Zachary Booth) at a bar late one night, their pants quickly come down and, eventually, so does Sam’s ossified guard.

After Louie

Vincent Gagliostro, U.S., 2017, 100 min.

This inspiring documentary chronicles the U.S. tour of a group of black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikki Finney, and Alexis Deveaux. As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, and explores the unique identity challenges they face at the intersection of gender, race, and sexuality.
